I just listened to last week's Savage Love podcast (number 129) and there is a call from a 25 year old man who was recently treated for phimosis... he describes it as his doctor managing to "tear the top of my foreskin in half."
Dan Savage goes on to say that circumcision is the only treatment for phimosis. I thought this wasn't actually true, and he also didn't mention any possible causes for phimosis... and although that doesn't address the caller's problem in any way... I think Dan Savage should be made aware. I know that he didn't circ his son, but it seems like maybe he's still missing some info?
I'm not that much of an expert on the matter, I just think circ. is horrifying... I was hoping somebody on here could write Dan Savage a letter with better information? Or have I totally misinterpreted? Because I thought there were treatments for phimosis that did not involve circumcision.
